About UF4A

The Unconventional Foundation for Autism, UF4A for short, is a non-
profit organization. The mission of UF4A is three fold: (1) to raise
awareness and support for families afflicted with this mysterious and
misunderstood condition known as Autism; (2) to raise funds for
cannabis-based medical research and clinical trials; and (3) to
campaign for a rescheduling of cannabis from Schedule 1 narcotic (no
accepted medical benefits) to a lower schedule so that the
research may be conducted, and so that all patients have access to
medication. A listing on Schedule 1 is tantamount to a research
blockade and, frankly, is unacceptable where millions continue to
needlessly suffer and subject to criminal punishment should they
choose to use cannabis under the direction of their physician. The
Schedule 1 listing fails to reflect the prevailing medical view that
cannabis has accepted medical benefits. UF4A is quickly becoming a
leading advocate in the fight for nationwide investigation, research
and analysis of the legalization of Medical Marijuana.

The partnership promises to advance the innovative medical autism
research headed by Executive Director Mieko Hester- Perez. The
Unconventional Foundation Autism's partnership focus is to bridge the
gap between parents, scientists, and medical professionals to provide
a better quality of life for our children diagnosed with the
misunderstood condition known as Autism.
